My name is Bert, and I live about 40 minutes southeast of Louisville.
I enjoy scroll-saw work, my old truck, and hopefully now - will dabble in smoking meat.
I purchased a Brinkmann electric smoker, and I am hoping to make my own bacon as a 1st project. I received an ample amount of fresh pork belly/side from someone who just doesn't like it as it comes fresh. However, I didn't know to ask for specific cuts (as I since have been reading about), so I hope it is still doable. I'll have them cut correctly next time... have it curing in the fridge now
After that.... ??who knows what is next to try and smoke??
I will be searching the forum a lot... looking for ideas and --even more so-- helpful articles on what I am doing. I know very little (just what I have recently read), so this is really a new adventure.
It looks to be interesting, fun, and most of all... yummy!
Thanks in advance for the help....
